The MarketWatch Q&A: Barbara Corcoran of ‘Shark Tank’ says she’s never seen someone with low energy become successful

Barbara Corcoran is invested in helping female entrepreneurs get their businesses funded.

The 70-year-old self-made businesswoman quit her job as a waitress in her 20s to start her New York City real estate brokerage businesses with just a $1,000 loan. She later sold The Corcoran Group for $66 million in 2001.

With 72% of female business owners saying lack of capital is a top challenge, the millionaire investor on ABC’s “Shark Tank” wants to help young female entrepreneurs get the funding they need to grow. She teamed up with iFundWomen, a crowdfunding platform for female entrepreneurs and Systane, an eye drops brand, for its Real Relief for Visionary Women campaign to provide 10 women business owners $5,000 grants and mentorship to help build their companies.
